Settled lives tend to undergo upheaval once they become the basis for a feature film. Check out Dennis Hopper’s character as a failed farmer who has become a moping high-school teacher in the small-town drama Carried Away (1996). Hopper’s rote relationship with girlfriend Amy Irving doesn’t stand a chance once vivacious blonde Amy Locane comes onscreen as a voracious seventeen-year-old minx who moves into town with her retired Army dad. Amy quickly hops from Hopper’s class into his bed, but all hell fails to break loose. Presented with non-sensationalistic leisure, Carried Away explores the complex textures and weaves within the fabric of human relations, as well as examines practically every inch of skin on the two Amys, Irving and Locane.
